KEY GAME INFORMATION
MILWAUKEE: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS benefitted from the arrival of Monta Ellis last year. He has the offense and system to thrive, and now needs to prove he can be efficient enough to be a star . . . MONTA ELLIS played second fiddle to Jennings last year, and really struggled to shoot the ball. The Bucks now play the kind of tempo he likes, but he'll have to adjust to playing off the ball more often . . . BENO UDRIH won't see a ton of action off the bench considering Jennings and Ellis play so many minutes. If a starter gets hurt, he could step in and hit a lot of threes . . . Second-rounder DORON LAMB has some upside as a future sixth man, but figures to ride the bench this year once his torn elbow ligament heals. FORWARDS: ERSAN ILYASOVA should finally get some respect from Skiles after starring down the stretch last year . . . MIKE DUNLEAVY re-emerged as a legitimate three-point threat, though he doesn't do much else . . . DREW GOODEN's role should shrink with Ilyasova stepping up and Sam Dalembert coming in . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH a MOUTE is coming off knee surgery, but he's improving as a rebounder and can play both forward spots off the bench . . . Rookie JOHN HENSON is a defensive stud and does enough as a screener to get decent minutes early . . . TOBIAS HARRIS was a Summer League star, but he's too much of a 'tweener to thrive in the NBA . . . EKPE UDOH provides defense and rebounding off the bench . . . LARRY SANDERS has potential, but this frontcourt is too crowded for him to make an impact. CENTERS: SAM DALEMBERT fell in and out of favor in Houston, but he's exactly what the Bucksneed as a defensive presence in the paint. Milwaukee has numerous players who can man the five in spots (Ekpe Udoh, Drew Gooden), but Dalembert is by far their best defensive option and should see big minutes . . . JOEL PRZYBILLA signed on in August to provide back-end depth on the pine.
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.

*Bucks-Timberwolves Preview* ============================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Milwaukee (7-6) at Minnesota (6-8), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Their centerpiece's return has not solved the Minnesota Timberwolves' problems, but another key player is closer to coming back. The Milwaukee Bucks will largely have to solve their issues using the pieces already in place.

Both Minnesota and Milwaukee started the season surprisingly well but have since struggled heading into their matchup at the Target Center on Friday night.

The Timberwolves (6-8) have lost six of seven after opening 5-2 without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. They're 1-4 since Love returned Nov. 21 after breaking his right hand in the preseason.

Love has double-doubles in all five games - he led the league with 48 last season - but is coming off his worst shooting effort. The All-Star forward went 3 of 12 from the field Wednesday, finishing with 19 points and 12 rebounds in a 101-95 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

He's averaging 23.0 points and 15.6 boards but hasn't been able to solve Minnesota's late-game woes. The Timberwolves have been outscored in the fourth quarter of the last five games by an average of 25.4-17.8, including 25-18 on Wednesday.

"I'm happy with how the team's been fighting," Love said. "We've just been losing some tough ones in the second half, and tonight was no different."

Minnesota learned before the game that Rubio was cleared to participate in full-contact practices. The dynamic point guard hasn't played since March 9 when he tore his ACL.

The Timberwolves have not designated a timetable for his return, but Rubio will likely see his first contact work in practice this weekend.

"We've missed him a lot," Adelman said of the former lottery pick. "Once we lost him we saw the impact he had on our group because of his leadership - and not just at the offensive end. He defended people better than most point guards."

Milwaukee (7-6) started 6-2 and still leads the Central Division but seems to be fading, having lost four of five.

The Bucks are coming off their second double-digit loss of the season, 102-88 to New York on Wednesday in Milwaukee. They're averaging 89.0 points over the last three games, compared to 101.2 through their first 10.

Milwaukee isn't being helped by 3-point shooting on either side of the floor, hitting 20.0 percent during the 1-4 slump while allowing opponents to make 40.3 percent. Mike Dunleavy is 5 for 19 from beyond the arc in that span after starting the season 18 for 33 (54.5 percent).

"We just have to play a lot better," said Dunleavy, who has failed to score in double figures in three straight games for the first time since the 2010-11 season.

"Last four or five games ... we just haven't played good basketball. We just have to be more consistent in our effort and doing what it takes to win."

Coach Scott Skiles continues to experiment with his lineup, starting a different group for the third time in three games Wednesday.

Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has been forced to regularly juggle his lineup. He's still missing Brandon Roy and Chase Budinger due to injuries, and Andrei Kirilenko sat out Wednesday because of back spasms. Josh Howard, signed as a free agent Nov. 16, made his first start in place of Kirilenko and scored seven points.

In these teams' only meeting last season, Love had 31 points and 20 rebounds but missed a last-second 3-pointer as Minnesota lost 98-95 at Milwaukee on Dec. 27.

The Bucks have won four of five overall in this series but have dropped 10 of 12 in Minnesota.
